The appointment which was made known on Thursday, July 16th 2020 through a presidential decree saw Raponda become the first woman in the country to hold the office of Prime Minister and also control President of United Cities and local governments Africa.

On February 12, 2019, Ms Raponda was appointed defence minister by President Ali Bongo Ondimba, after the failed coup in January. She has a degree in Economics (Public Finance) from the Gabonese Institute of Economy and Finance.
